Wedding: Holley-Mead (1899)

Source: Greenwich Graphic. October 21, 1899.

The Marriage of Miss Sarah L. Mead and Mr. E. L. Holley.


The Mead Homestead on Maple avenue presented a pretty scene on Tuesday evening, when Miss Sarah Lewis Mead, daughter of the late Solomon Mead, was married to Mr. Edward L. Holley, of Greenwich.

Rev. Washington Choate performed the ceremony, assisted by Rev. B. M. Wright, of Orange, Conn.

Two little flower girls, Mildred Mead and Dorothea Barrows, escorted the bride.

Messrs. Christy Mead and Everett Mead were the ushers.

Pink and white chrysanthemums made the homestead bright with their beauty and color, and added an especial charm to the scene.

There were about one hundred and seventy five relatives and friends of the bride and groom present at the marriage.

The gifts to the bride were numerous and beautiful.

After the ceremony, a wedding supper was served.

Upon their return from a wedding to her, Mr. and Mrs. Holley will reside in the Lyman cottage on Putnam avenue.
